That Reminds Me ...

It's been a little windy around our parts and that has cause a bunch of power outages. Some people are not happy with how we're getting updates on the progress to restore power.

In the spirit of our, possible, new rulers in the NDP. I would like to suggest everyone to get used this problem if we "go green" with our power supply.

From a few months ago: Lawrence Solomon: Don’t count on constant electricity under renewable energy, says UK electricity CEO

Electricity consumers in the UK will need to get used to flicking the switch and finding the power unavailable, according to Steve Holliday, CEO of National Grid, the country’s grid operator. Because of a six-fold increase in wind generation, which won’t be available when the wind doesn’t blow, “The grid is going to be a very different system in 2020, 2030,” he told BBC’s Radio 4. “We keep thinking that we want it to be there and provide power when we need it. It’s going to be much smarter than that.

Maybe your OK with that.
